We are architects of homes. Our projects range from small remodels to large scale residences. On every project our mission is to collaborate with our clients to understand the unique context of their project, and together create an inspirational, sustainable, and lasting addition to the built environment. WA design was established in 1985 by David Stark Wilson, AIA. Our design philosophy emphasizes the inter-relationship of building and site. Each design begins as a considered response to a set of criteria dictated by the site and client. Although progressive in approach, our designs draw heavily on the vernacular building of the area in which we are working. Ordering principles for a given project borrow from their context and often metaphorically relate to the natural landscape. This connects our buildings to their specific site and circumstance in a meaningful way. A crucial component of the overall design objective on each project is to apply the design of sustainable and solar features as an integral component of the architecture. From initial building siting concepts through building organization and material selection, each phase is approached with sustainable ideas at the forefront of the design decisions.

At zero ten design we believe that the goal of architecture and interior design is to create places and spaces that inspire, enthrall and delight. We have collectively been achieving this goal for over 50 years by designing award-winning projects of all types, specializing in hospitality, residential, retail, office and restaurants. While our egos are never at the forefront, our imagination always is, allowing us to dream up a wide range of options for our clients, and working hand-in-hand with them to fulfill their aspirations and tailor to their needs. We love design in all its forms, and bring an unbridled enthusiasm to our work, crafting projects that are thoughtful, contextual and timeless, but it is our collective obsession with meaning—with bringing to life a concept—that sets us apart. Our approach rests on the notion that the best designs weave a storyline into a tangible, built form, manifested either through the client’s vision, the history of the place or other relevant thematic elements. However, this is not themed design and this is not trend-driven design. Instead, we build connected and meaningful experiences -- psychologically, ergonomically and aesthetically-- that speak directly to our clients. We research every cultural nuance and social context until we reach a thorough understanding of the concept of a project. Once there, we seek to weave the fine-grained details intrinsically into the ideas that define this overall concept. This cohesiveness ultimately results in a more personalized, nuanced and engaging experience for the inhabitants. Our process is completely centered around defining and developing the experience to meet the expectations of our clients, and allows the client to be an integral part of the design team, as a collaborator in the exploration of the project’s vision. This process is a thoughtful and methodical one, and begins with the review of inspirational images that set the overall tone and mood of the design. From there, we springboard into a creative exploration in both two and three dimensions, which lets the design unfold as we develop and react to the different iterations. Once a design direction is determined, we work closely with a talented pool of engineers, craftsmen and contractors to see the project through its completion, and help the client navigate through a process that can often seem overwhelming and complicated.

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, our architects draw from numerous historical styles, including English Arts and Crafts, Tuscan, and Neoclassical. Each of our projects reflects the spirit of a unique time and place, while at the same time addressing present-day requirements. We embrace construction methods that revive the lost art of craftsmanship. Time-tested materials and picturesque details such as post-and-beam construction reflect the care and craft that are the signatures of artistic attention. Authentic finishes and hardware infuse a sense of beauty and livability rarely achieved by modern architecture. The design process begins with what our clients find evocative – places they have visited, things they have seen, their personality and their dreams. The many completed homes and buildings designed by the firm throughout Northern California are evidence of its success since its establishment in 1989.

I am a Licensed Architect with over 25 years experience and a Licensed General Contractor in California. I am one of the few Architects who has built what he has designed from the ground up. I acted as the Architect, the Developer and the Builder for a challenging new residence in the Oakland Hills.

My Award Winning Residential Projects range from Kitchen and Bath Remodels, Additions, Entire House Remodels, New Houses from the ground up and Large Multifamily and Townhouse Projects. I offer complete Architectural Services, from the initial concept through to the final punch list. A typical scope of services includes: A comprehensive Design Phase, where I listen and assess my clients needs and offer several design solutions to choose and work from; Preliminary cost estimating with the assistance of a qualified Contractor to establish a Preliminary Construction Budget; A Design Development Phase where finishes, fixtures and finishes are reviewed and selected; Comprehensive and Detailed Construction Documents for Permit Approval, to Bid from, and to Build from; Review of Bids from qualified Contractors; and Construction Observation during the Construction of the Project. I have a passion for creative problem solving and pursue a thorough attention to detail. This imaginative problem solving and attention to detail is documented in highly detailed drawings that focus on beauty and elegance, practicality, and solid construction principles. These highly detailed drawings result in accurate bids, fewer change orders and beautifully built projects. My projects feature industry standard sustainable materials and methods, and several feature in depth sustainable material selection and focus on energy efficiency.
